Steve Campbell was once a major presence in several newsgroups and mailing lists about the same time as I. This is where we made our acquaintance and later became good friends. He was a very talented musician as well as a tremendously quick linux study and all around general purpose NUT. He kept me in stitches. Steve may have disappeared from the web, but his music, linux contributions, and memories live on. He dropped out of sight when he got himself a real life (i.e. job, wife/girlfriend/fiance...). Dirty rat...

This is it, the Moment all you newbies have been waiting for, this is the list of the top ten commands that every new linux user should learn about to save time, effort and usenet flames.

I want to get two things clear from the start.
First......Where the hell do you USE all these commands....
